epression is a sickness that can mess with your life in a dozen different
ways, mostly characterized by sadness and tiredness. While medication
does exist, many people turn to natural remedies to help with depression
and live healthier and fuller lives. While the natural remedies do not replace
antidepressants or medical help for the disease, they can support you as a short-
1.Changing your diet- certain foods, such as those rich in Omega 3 fatty acids
or Serotonin, can help you improve your mood. Serotonin is in food such as
healthy fats, eggs, and fish, and eating these foods can give you a mood
boost. Also, green tea and coffee are also mood boosters; however, unlike
coffee, green tea doesn’t give you a crash and make you feel worse after the
initial boost wears off.
2.Staying active with a routine and goals- Depression can make people seem
like nothing matters and no matter what you do you’ll always feel lost. The
best way to combat this is to get a routine for a day and stick to a schedule,
that way your brain doesn’t have time to think about being depressed, and
your body always has something to do. Setting goals for yourself is also a
way to keep yourself moving and feel accomplished. Even if they are small
goals such as making the bed every day or do the dishes every day, they can
help you keep positive thoughts as you look to see what you’ve gotten done
on a given day. Also, keeping up with your responsibilities even on bad days
will allow you to maintain a sense of success, so you don’t get into a slump.
3.Exercise and sleep- Keeping yourself active, even if it’s just a walk every
day or ten pushups before bed, these can be good goals to set for yourself
and give your brain a massive rush to boost your mood. Similarly, putting
yourself on a sleep schedule and getting a full eight hours also helps your
body stay rested and refreshed, taking away some of the tiredness that
4.Recognize you are not alone- Whether you must see a therapist or you feel
comfortable with family, the best way to combat depression is to be with
others. Understand that your family and friends want to help you get better,
and fighting solidarity is the strongest way to combat depression. People will
want to help you, but you must reach out and accept the help.
None of these solutions are a replacement for treatment and prescribed help, but
they are supplements that can help you deal with the symptoms of depression until
it can be shaken off for good.
